COVID 19

Currently our operations are very limited.
 
Fortunately, as we are a not for profit flying school we are able to tick along in maintenance mode with our volunteers doing plenty of work to keep us ready to resume operations.
 
This means we will definitely survive and will be able to honour gift certificates once the restrictions are over.
 
If you have a gift certificate with an expiry date coming up we will gladly extend that date.

 

Perlan Project

The scenic and highest 2.45 minutes of video footage of Airbus Perlan Mission II flight #52 on September 2, 2018. The highest altitude reached in the stratospheric wave was above 76,000 (pressure) feet which is above the U-2 record altitude of about 73,500 feet.

The high point for the pressurized high-altitude Perlan 2 glider with Chief Pilot Jim Payne and Pilot Tim Gardner was as they turned east over the turquoise waters of Lago Argentino at the one minute mark. They continue a gentle scenic turn for the next 1.45 minutes. The camera was a Garmin VIRB 360. The glare is from the sun at the extremely high altitude. The music is from Silent Partner.
